About The Book
Written by one of the most outstanding scholars of the 20th century, Islamic Manners is a vital book that exemplifies the sublime Islamic Personality. Shaykh Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghuddah (1917 - 1997) was a leading scholar in the field of hadith and strove not only in narrating prophetic traditions but also making it a living reality.
This book discusses essential adaab (manners) and covers the following areas:
- Importance of Appearance
- Entering and Leaving a House
- The Manners of Visiting
- The Manners of Conversation
- Social Manners
- Communicating with non-Muslims
- The Manners of Eating & Drinking
- Visiting a Sick Person
Muslims possess a great wealth in manners and styles manifested in the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and the lives of his companions. This book will enable us to gain insightful glimpses to his personality and manners. It has been composed by selecting important texts of great magnitude and essence.
The ahadith cited in this book are either sahih (authentic) or hasan (good). This book has been written mainly for the many Muslim brothers and sisters who disregard these manners and misinterpret them. In compiling it, I hope to remind them of these manners. I do not claim to be better or less in need of practising these manners; but it is the duty of enjoining good and forbidding evil and observing the order of Allah: "And remind [them] for a reminder benefits the believers."
May Allah enable all of us to benefit from good reminders and make this of benefit to my readers and myself. May Allah protect us and be our guide in this life and in the Hereafter.
